UT3 beta demo out now

Testing, testing: one, two...

Epic Games and Midway have popped an open beta demo for Unreal Tournament 3 on the Internet.

Mark Rein revealed that it was on the way last week, although it arrives slightly ahead of his "two weeks" prediction.

The place to get your hands on it is over on FilePlanet - as redirected from the official website - where you will have to register for a free account and then sit in a queue about 30 minutes long before you can begin your download.

It is likely numerous other download locations will spring up soon, though, so feel free to offer a friendly link in our comments section below.

Currently the open beta demo is only available to Windows users, and will give you all a chance to test out a couple of maps and then leave your feedback for Epic Games so it can make a more polished end product - like a shoe.

Head over to the Unreal Tournament 3 official forums to see what everyone is saying, and for solutions to some teething errors and optimisation queries.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
